Ah - now I'm with you Sol.  That's a thin inner leaf that will eventually be made up of 2 or 3 laminations.  No need to worry then. :cheers

I really like the set back of the windows, Sol.  :thumbs

I agree Max.  It may be fiddly Sol but it looks great with window returns both inside and out.  A big improvement on the flush inside glazing I'd say :thumbs

I think the three dimensional effect is excellent:thumbs:thumbs

I may have asked this before but how do you handle getting Company paintschemes on the woodwork.......if it were GWR for example the door would be dark stone except the inset panels which would be light stone.......if LMS some combination of Lake and Cream..................currently they are a sort of weathered white.............do you have to paint with water colours?

My Company paint colours are what comes with the Kit but yes, I would think acrylics would do the trick but like cutting the doors out, a fiddly job & especially not after some liberal RLW intake..
The 3D effect may not be that noticable to those who are blind in one eye & cannot see out of the other, but I know that they are there and I really only have to please myself.
After the recent goods shed & tiled roof, I think I will be glueing the tiles to thin card to give a more pronounced effect - some testing is needed I think.

Grey tiled roof - well my printer has the fits & prints red lines through the roof & needs a lot of cleaning & in the process uses, gallons of ink to do so . One of my  mates, will print the roof sheets for me in the next day or two so in the mean time, I am carrying on with other aspects of the station.

The valance is paper folded over & if you want to, the notches at the bottom can be cut out - I did & I think look good.




The closeup photo shows a couple of bits still to be tidied up in the notches.

Module 1/Office basically finished - posters to go on later when all modules are ready for plonking onto the platform.

Front



Rear



Close up of tiled roof- paper tiles glued to 200gsm card, cut into strips, edges darkened & overlapped.




Glueing the valance on was also a highlight of the morning.

Thanks for the translation Marty :thumbs

I agree absolutely with the other comments Sol.  The roof really was worth the extra effort and the valance sets it all off nicely.  All in all, a great little station building.

Would you say it was an easy build - I know they can be time consuming and even, at times, tedious but is it a fairly straightforward model to build ?

Peter, it is straight forward - well so far, I am into the dwelling module now. It does take time & some parts can be tedious especailly cutting out windows & doors in thick card but once they get covered & take shape, things look up.
Some more photos tomorrow if the neuralgia from the Shingles gives me some peace & lets me finish some more..

The shingles must have gone down hill Sol because the last time we conversed you were thinking you had the upper hand and things weren't too bad.

I don't know how you've managed to model that much with shingles.

Just to prove it is possible - this is a N gauge version with the notches cut out...

Yes as Ian shows, N scale is possible, just more time & care.

Re my Shingles, yes I thought it was easy while the rashes was coming, but that was the easy part. The rashes has stopped & are going but the pain in the nerves are really playing up now - sitting, it dulls off, then out of the blue, it gets me either in the chest or the back & sometimes , both places at the same time. I try to get through the day without painkillers but need them at night to sleep. I have a doctors' appointment tomorrow on a different subject so I will ask about it again.
From what I have been told, the neuralgia pain can stay for months, not impressed with that but then there are people worse off than me.

The two story dwelling is next




I decided not to furnish it as there will not be lights.

Added the other two walls-




This time, the door frame was painted green, a replacement door as the first one got damaged by hooligans. Blinds & curtains added. The back wall has 3 windows.
Roof to go.
